Hi, all! And welcome to Day 2 of my Handmade Holiday video series! Today I am super excited to share with you that I will be a part of the TupeloDesignsLLC design team!! Starting in December I will be doing at least one project a week featuring some of the fantastic supplies from this online shop. I love all of the support that the crafty community provides for one another and I'm so jazzed to be a part of this team! So go check it out and do some shopping!
For today's card I have a really quick, clean and simple card that could be mass produced in no time flat! AND it's a great example of how you can take the supplies that you have and make some minor tweaks to create a whole new look! I wanted to make a strand of lights out of the Merry Christmas sentiment in the Winter Scripty Sayings stamp set from Lawn Fawn. So I found a set that had an image of some holiday lights (Cozy Christmas by Lawn Fawn - I've been wanting this set FOREVER and could never find it in stock but I found it at TupeloDesignsLLC!!) and I used my scissors to carefully trim one bulb off of the end of the image.
I then used that single bulb to create my sentiment lights! If I wanted to, I could mount the stamp back together on an acrylic block how it was originally intended or I can use the altered strand with one less bulb. Either way, I got more use out of that one stamp than I would have otherwise! I then used my Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pens to color in the bulbs for a non-traditional coloring medium that gave the lights beautiful sparkle! To finish up, I rounded the corners, added some Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, distressed the edges, and applied glossy accents to the bulbs for that glass-like finish.
This card came together very quickly and turned out really fun and whimsical! Thanks so much for stopping by! I will be back shortly with Day 3 of my Handmade Holiday series. The full video tutorial for this card is linked above and the products are linked below! See you soon! Bye!
